Scraps to Treasures Fancy Fold Card


Welcome to the Scraps to Treasure’s Blog Hop. We are independent bloggers who love to craft like crazy and show it all off, crafters from the sister group the “Krazy Crafting Crew”, and even more crafters have joined this open group to bring you many ideas on what to do with those crazy scraps that keep piling up! Our goal is to inspire you to go through your stash and create! If you would like to join this team you are welcome to share what you have too with new themes, challenges and more every month. Just contact Robin Scott or Lissa Marie on our blogs or on Facebook, if you are interested in joining our Scraps to Treasure Team too!
If you have stumbled upon this hop, and would love to start from the beginning, our host this month is Robin Lane from Create-a-latte  If you just came from Creations with Kathryn you  are well on your way through the hop. 

Fancy Fold Cards is the theme today, how fun and different then the ordinary card, this is the fancy fold I chose to make to inspire you!

Today I am bringing you a card fold I had never tried before.  It is called a SWING CARD.  I found a tutorial for it here:

This will be a birthday card for my husband's 50th!  Although he prefers black and yellow (on anything and everything) because we make our projects from scraps I didn't have enough craps in coordinating black and yellow so he will have to be happy with this card!

All my papers are from CTMH.  They are left over from a scrapbook page I had made.  The collection is called Stella.  Papers are inked in CTMH Lagoon.

You next stop on this inspiration hop is Jearise

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, enough to leave a little love through commenting. Our host is having a giveaway and a variety of blogs may be offering some blog candy as well, they all have their own wishes for you to win on their own blog, so don't forget to read the rules for each crafter has different requirements if they are offering any extra’s.

 Thank you for stopping by, I would love to hear what you think of my fancy fold card!

KKC April Blog Hop

What could be more fun than decorating? Isn’t that what we all do in some form whether  it is our photos or projects..
This month as you can see the Krazy Crafting Crew has gotten together and made inspiring refrigerator magnets!
We all hope you find a little inspiration along the way today
Magnets can be done so many different ways… the sky is the limit!
Our hostess today is Cicily at pink dalmations scrapbooker

If you have already been on the hop, and have arrived from Two Chicks and a Cricut, you are in the right place!
If not please start where all great things begin…

For my project this month I decided to make something I knew I would use quite alot.  My 'fridge magnets are also bag clips.  This way I can store them on my refridgerator and I will always know where one is!  I went to Dollar Tree (my all time favorite  store lol) and picked up this set of bag clips.  I then used vinyl and some punches to add a little flair.

They can double has holders for photos or notes that I want to show off

This is a very simple process, all I had to do was get some sticky magnet material,  (but wait of course I
had that in my stash already).  Stuck the magnets to the back of the decorated clips and tada my $1
clips looked wonderful!

I'm so glad you keep coming and visiting us each month, thank you!  

Your next stop is Robin at Create A Latte

Thanks so much for hopping with us!

Just some stuff I've been working on

So I know I have only been posting about once a month for a regular team I'm on, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy crafting other things.  So I thought I'd share a few things I just made for myself.

This is our water cooler.  I made this vinyl sticker
with free vinyl from Oracle

A ball cap for my husband, didn't really like how this
turned out, was way to hard to press with an iron

A couple of the vinyl wall decor I made for the grandkids' play room

On the side of my Keurig coffee maker

A t-shirt (broke down and bought a heat press) for my DIL

Silly gift for my boss who got an infection
in his finger after he got a simple cut

Vinyled some bucket to hold candy for my grandsons' football

Everything here is done on my Silhouette Cameo and with vinyl.  I've got tons more to show you and will in the next few days.  I've been crafting away and because it was for me and not for a scheduled hop I guess I just didn't think to post it up.  But now that there is a group silhouette Pinterest board for a group I am part of on Facebook I will be posting more "just because" projects!

If you want any more information on any of these projects just leave me a comment and a way to respond back!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin!
